A Review for Time To Lie: Did I Create “Dude Lit”?

Here is a funny review that came in on Amazon yesterday:

The Master of “Dude-Lit” Tackles Time Travel and Wins!

I’ve been a fan of Phil Taylor since reading his first two novels. If there were such a thing as “dude-lit” – this guy is the master. I bought Time to Lie without knowing anything about it. What a great read! I am a huge fan of time travel books so this was right up my alley. Plus he puts in enough references to other time travel so that geeks like me can enjoy that along with his completely original concept. I can’t wait to see where Landon heads next in this chronicle of stories! ~Gregory G. Allen

“Dude-Lit”? That’s funny. We’ve all heard of “Chick Lit” from authors like Janet Evanovich and Nicholas Sparks. Apparently my books have created the new genre of #DudeLit.  I may not be on the Amazon bestseller list yet, but if I’ve created a whole genre of literature, I’m pretty happy with that accomplishment.

Actually, I’d like to thank friend, actor, and author Gregory G. Allen for coining the phrase Dude- Lit and applying it to my books in his review. Gregory G. Allen is an award-winning author of three novels, one non-fiction memoir, and two children’s books on autism awareness – the first of which won the People’s Choice Grand Prize Award in the 2012 MeeGenius! Author Challenge. He’s also a blogger. You can read his blog here. He has been in the entertainment business for over twenty five years as an actor, director, producer, songwriter, playwright, screenwriter, and author. His short film MOTHER won several awards on the festival circuit in 2015.  Greg is a really great writer and an even better human. Go check out his books on Amazon.

Have a great Friday! ~Phil

“A Roller Coaster Ride of Fun” and like Back To The Future?

Reviewed by Bruce Arrington for Readers’ Favorite

Time To Lie: Landon Bridges’ Story Book 1 by Phil Taylor is what I would call a YA thriller/sci fi/comedy that is somewhat reminiscent of Back to the Future, but without the DeLorean going 88 miles per hour in order to travel to a different time. Landon’s in a much different situation, and time travel is not exactly like he expected it to be. His knowledge about his future begins at zero (as you might imagine), but ramps up steadily throughout the book. Without giving too many spoilers away, our hero Landon learns that some big changes are coming and he’s a big part of them. Little by little, he learns the extent of his responsibility in the whole mix.

This was an excellent story, with believable characters, plenty of twists and turns, mysterious people coming and going, and events unfolding, all the while adding a generous dose of self-deprecating humor to the mix. The story was tightly written and worked well to keep me in my seat. It was hard to put it down. I liked the part where the author showed how going back and forth in time can mess things up, instead of only always telling how things will change for the worse. The only downside I saw in Time to Lie, Landon Bridges’ Story Book 1 was the use of profanity throughout that might turn some readers off. However, overall, Phil Taylor delivers a roller-coaster ride of fun. Fortunately for us readers, this is only the first book. Highly recommended.

Thank you Bruce and Readers Favorite! If you haven’t tried my humorous suspense time travel novel, why not? It’s available on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback. Have a great Friday! ~Phil
